When Nintendo announced its latest Nindies Showcase event, few Zelda fans (myself included) expected any kind of Zelda-related news. Were we ever in for a shock! Nintendo announced that it is collaborating with developer Brace Yourselves Games to bring us Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda this Spring! This Switch game will combine Crypt of the NecroDancer’s top-down, 2D roguelike rhythm gameplay with Legend of Zelda art style, world, and characters. Players will adventure through a procedurally-generated overworld and dungeons as Cadence (star of the original Crypt of the NecroDancer), Link, and even Zelda! Gameplay requires timing movement and action to the beat of the music in order to succeed. Cadence of Hyrule will feature remastered Legend of Zelda tracks for players to time their actions to.
Cadence of Hyrule does not have a release date, only that it is coming in Spring 2019. You can check out the trailer below, then let us know in the comments if you’re excited for this release!
